I kind of understand how it transitioned into an actual name.
Khalil and Kahlila are similar enough, I knew people with these names (from separate families) growing up and Khalil has been in the top 1000 for at least 2 decades now.
Khaleesi is maybe a fresher version of these names?
NB Don't get me wrong I intensely dislike all these names.I like distinct, memorable, exotic and preferably non-popular names. The kids with unique names wore them so well when I was younger and never got lost in the crowd.

Khaleesi is awful, for several reasons.
1. This series is garbage. I read the first 4 novels and concluded that George RR Martin smokes crack. One day, IF we are lucky, an abridged version of this series might come out and be decent reading.
2. Linguistically speaking George RR Martin is NOT talented, I think his invented character/place names are contrived and unconvincing.
3. Anyone who has read the series knows that Khaleesi is an honorary name; for somebody to not know that and name their child after it is really sad IMHO.
And for the record, I am seriously considering an LOTR name as a MN for a daughter. But Tolkien is in a class of his own and completed his work with integrity.

Well... Khaleesi sounds cool and looks pretty, so I get the appeal. But not for a kid. Why?
1. It's not a name. I don't mean it was made up; some made up names are decent. I mean it's literally not a name. It's a title.
2. It's a not-name (aka title) in a trendy book/tv series, even if the show is a total gp of mine. So when the trend dies, your kid is stuck with the name.
3. Naming a kid after the literal title of a ruler seems ... too much somehow. Not sure if I mean pretentious or just way too much burden/expectations for the kid
Conclusion: Use Khaleesi - it's awesome. Use it to name the cat. Or the dog. But preferably the cat. Because, lets face it, people, cats just know they are the queens of our households. See, the name's a perfect fit
